After the new Corona virus has become a threat threatening the whole world about 10 months since its appearance, all of us are looking forward to knowing what happens every minute, in light of the tremendous development that Covid-19 has brought in our lives.
Within this framework, “Masrawy” provides a daily service that includes displaying everything you want to know about the latest developments in the emerging corona virus, from the emergence of new symptoms or the occurrence of a different mutation, as well as the development of vaccines and drugs, in brief.
A surprise about antibodies
A new study by Marc Feldwin, principal investigator at the Instituto de Medicina Molecular University João Lobo Antunes (iMM, Portugal), revealed a surprise about the antibodies in Corona patients.
The study, published by “medicalxpress”, confirmed that 90% of people have detectable antibodies 40 days to 7 months after infection with the emerging coronavirus.
These results, now published in the European Journal of Immunology, show that age is not a confounding factor in the levels of antibodies produced, but rather the severity of the disease is the main cause.
Good news for these children
A new study revealed that children who have tested positive for the Coronavirus and have not shown symptoms, suffer from the virus in a lower proportion than those who have appeared on them.
The study, conducted by researchers in America, suggested that children who had tested positive for Covid-19 but did not show any of the symptoms may have lower viral levels than infected children who had clear symptoms, according to the British newspaper, Daily Mail.
A serious warning from global health
The World Health Organization said that the northern hemisphere is facing a critical moment in combating the Covid-19 pandemic, as a large number of countries are witnessing a steady increase in the number of infections.
“Many countries are witnessing a steady increase in Covid-19 infections, and this is now leading to the supervision of intensive care units reaching their maximum capacity or already reached it even though we are still in October, the months,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The next few will be very difficult and some countries are on a dangerous path. “
The muzzle is able to prevent 130 thousand deaths
A recent American study revealed that fully wearing face masks is able to prevent 130,000 deaths related to the emerging corona virus.
According to what was published by “Niger Medicine” magazine, wearing the mask in the correct manner and social distancing are the two most important means of preventing the coronavirus until the date of the vaccine approval, according to Sputnik.
The study showed that 85% of people wearing masks in public places can save the lives of nearly 96,000 people, while 95% of people fail to fully wear the mask, and more than half a million people may die.
